You're the commander of the fleet when you play Battleship. This strategy game is lots of funno wonder it's a classic! It's easily portable, too: each player's game board and pieces fold up in a plastic carrying case. Includes 2 fold-up game units, 168 white pegs, 84 red pegs, 10 plastic ships and instructions in English and Spanish. For 2 players, ages 7 and up. From Milton Bradley. Made in USA.
Battleship captains plot their strategies, send out torpedoes, and as the last ship (often the smallest, two-peg patrol boat) hides in an unsuspected corner, anticipation mounts. Like many classic games, Battleship walks a fine line between strategy and luck. The goal is to conceal the location of your ships while finding and destroying your enemies' fighters. The playing arena is a notebook-size plastic board updated for '90s sensibilities: the "floor" of the board is printed with waves and the exterior vaguely resembles a laptop. The design mimics the view a submarine captain would have, complete with a glimmer of radar waves. The game is perfect entertainment to share: simple enough for children, yet gratifying enough for adults to enjoy. One design decision keeps this edition from being truly stellar: the playing boards don't lock securely, allowing the small pegs to fall out and spill from the sides if jostled. --Jennifer BuckendorffSee all Product description

I found this 1967 version which looks like what I grew up with so I decided to get it. You'll have to look at the seller that I used as each one is probably different. I used "infinite possibilities for you". It came quickly through Amazon Prime and basically as described. The game is in very good condition and all the parts are there. The box is not brand new but in great condition for probably being tens of years old. And they disclosed that.
The original game is very simple. No batteries or lights. Just a peg board, 5 ships and pegs. Hope my son enjoys it! I read that the modern version's pegs don't stay in well.
That being said, I see a flaw in Amazon's rating system as this product is offered by multiple sellers. So our rating of the product is directly tied to the seller but gets blended as an average. This is more like an eBay transaction buy treated as if it's from one place. Probably not fair.
The game doesn't look real sturdy, but will outlast me, probably. I had a bit of a problem getting the play pieces mounted on the play board, but with a little determination, and some surgical trimming with my pocket knife, we got a game underway. The game didn't last long as I sunk my opponents ships one after the other. Nothing like a sore loser in a war game. They want revenge!!
One thing in particular that I didn't like: The game has red pegs and white pegs to denote hits and misses on the enemy's ships. All of these pegs come packed in a SINGLE CELLOPHANE BAG. What a pain, having to separate those little things before you can fire your first shot. Come on, guys (whoever makes this thing), use two cellophane bags. I promise, you won't go broke, and you'll do wonders for your image (and my language).
It's a fun game, but apparently frustrating for those who lose. I don't get the feeling I'll be playing this much, but it'll still make a nice gift - and I'll include two bags of separated colored pegs!
As for construction, I will confirm other reviewer comments that the build quality is poor. I remember that in my old game, the pegs would sit firmly in the holes. Now, with a simple move of the board, pegs can fall down, causing you to lose your place. They also don't sit well in the boat pieces. I also received a number of crooked pieces, making them useless.
I can't imagine how anyone wouldn't be disappointed by this game. You may get a few good rounds with it, but don't be surprised if it quickly ends up in the closet collecting dust.
